You Make Me Happy - Two Cards

The two cards I'm sharing today have the same message and a warm colour scheme, but I have tried my best to make them as different from each other as I could...the first one is a shaker card with a stencilled background and the second one has a few rows of string lights as the main focus..

I started by creating the background for my shaker card....I have used the Bohemian Bazaar stencil with Distress Oxide inks to print the pattern on a glossy photo paper(Kodak brand)...the oxide inks were slightly rubbing off when touched so I guess it was a good decision to use this panel for a shaker card...I have used squeezed lemonade,wild honey and carved pumpkin ink shades here..I also glued some metallic orange sequins to this panel before adhering it to the card base...

I then die cut a rectangle frame from orange cardstock and added some acetate behind it...I created the well for the shaker using craft foam and added the sequins and attached it to the card base..since the photo paper was glossy,the sequins moved quite well inside the shaker..

I adhered the die cut word 'happy' and the stamped sentiment strip on the front of my card and added a cute stamped image of a little girl as well and my card was ready...

For my second card,I stamped the string lights using Versafine black onyx ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder before colouring them in using watercolours...I then sponged the edges with fossilised amber Oxide ink and stamped the sentiment using vintage photo Oxide ink...

I stamped a pinwheel just above the sentiment and coloured it in before adhering this panel onto a plain white card base...to embellish my card I have added a few gold Nuvo drops as well as a bit of shimmer on the pinwheel..
